OK… So when you gonna come play with me??
We choose to be different!
We believe in outdoor play and fresh air year round for the physical and emotional health of the DOGS!
Safety at The Petz for both dogs and staff are our top priority, which is the reason we are not cage free. It’s our belief, dogs who play hard, need to rest between playtimes to allow their minds and bodies to restore themselves. We have found, even the sweetest pup can become a bit snippy when overly tired! Our cages are very spacious allowing for maximum comfort. Each dog is assigned a cage and it becomes their house.
Every dog is also assigned a pack. Creating a pack takes time and thought, it’s not just throwing a lot of dogs together and hoping for the best! No matter the size, temperament, personality, or energy level, we blend dogs to create a pack dog by dog, around a singular stable dog. We assess each dog before introduction to another dog to be sure they are free of dog on dog aggression and people aggression. We will not accept an aggressive dog.
We rotate each pack hourly followed by rest time to prevent the dogs from becoming overly tired. And because this constant movement of dogs is exhausting work, we also rotate the Kennel/Pack Attendants with short shifts to keep everyone fresh and alert while moving and supervising the pack outings. This movement is key to prevent boredom by stimulating the dog’s mind. Standing in a room for six or eight hours is something your dog can do at home!
Enough talking… Come meet us!!
